Affiliates win OVPRI Outstanding Research Awards

Two CSWS faculty affiliates are among the winners of the 2021-22 Outstanding Research Awards from the Office of the Vice President of Research and Innovation. The awards recognize and celebrate achievements in research and scholarship and highlight notable research activities taking place at the University of Oregon.

Professor Lynn Stephen, Department of Anthropology, received an Outstanding Career Award—UO’s highest award for faculty members. According to Around the O, this award recognizes and celebrates "a deep and distinguished record of scholarship and research on campus and external recognition and support of such efforts, and national and international prominence in their field of research."

Professor Beth Stormshak, Prevention Science Institute, received the Innovation Award, which Around the O says "recognizes outstanding communication, policy outreach and other entrepreneurial or broader public engagement activity."

“These awards represent the top tier of research happening at the UO and impressive contributions to diverse fields,” said Cass Moseley, interim vice president for research and innovation. “The Advancing Diversity, Equity and Inclusion in Research Award deserves special recognition as our newest award and as a firm step toward aligning with the university priority of increasing representation in research and higher education.”
